Polka Dot Media is a Surrey-based PR & Communications agency that aims to achieve reputation management at its best. Many exciting B2B sectors across the UK have all benefited from strategic communications from financial services and accountancy to construction and SME’s.

By working on a strategy right from the start, the most effective communication channels can be identified that are best suited to raising your profile and delivering impressive results, and most importantly, a return on investment. Whether that be in the form of a press release, social media planning or creating engaging content.  By developing a true understanding of your business, this can rapidly place you front-of-mind with your ideal clients looking to use your products or services.


Founder of Polka Dot Media

Hi, I’m Zoe Symonds and for 20 years’ I’ve delivered positive results for a variety of sectors and clients. Whether that be in-house, freelancing or direct-to-client. Working in a dynamic and fast-changing industry requires a personality to match, and that’s why I enjoy working with clients who are equally as enthusiastic about PR as me!

It may be a one-off project or campaign you are seeking support for, or a long-term PR strategy that needs a safe and reliable pair of hands to guide you through. Whatever your requirements, my expertise lends itself to include a range of disciplines across the PR & Communications mix that will help you stand out from your competition.

I am passionate about what I achieve for my clients and have seen first-hand the difference PR can make. Therefore, I would welcome the opportunity of working with you to raise your profile, get a strategy in place and get your company firmly at the forefront of your customers minds. Whether you’re an ambitious SME or a start-up struggling to find the time for PR & Communications, a professional pair of hands can really add value and help to enhance your reputation.
